obama has just been speaking. in all of this, the military will play a key role. >> there is no doubt at all what people want. >> everyone has one demand. mubarak must go and he must go now. but who or what will replace him? for nearly 60 years, this country has been run by the military. hosni mubarak, like his predecessor, was a military general. in 1981, and more sadat was assassinated. mubarak was bundled to safety and the presidency. egypt has the eighth largest army in world. if mubarak those, his replacement will almost certainly come from the military. -- if mubarak goes. the most likely candidate is the vice president's. last night, he made this promise. >> in this time, we can do what president mubarak has said. and we can do more. when a new president will come, you will have more time to make any changes you want. >> but egypt's most important ally now says that is not enough. >> need a broad and credible representation of egypt's civil society and political factions, to begin immediately, during negotiations for an orderly transition. >> but mubarak supporters warn if the

points memo. now we've heard a lot of happy talk from the obama administration about how the economy is picking up, and today's anemic job numbers paint a far gloomier picture. one of the unemployment rate fell to 9%, this is merely cosmetic. as economists noted today, the drop is mostly due to a slow down in layoffs, not any significant pick up in hiring. payrolls added only 36,000 employees nationwide. to give you a cents of how bad this is, economists say in order to makeup for the 7.7 million jobs lost, we need to add 214,000 jobs a month. not 36,000. for next three years. think of it another way according to forbes magazine check this out. the u.s. labor market started 2011 with half a million jobs, fewer than it had 11 years ago. the labor force has grown since then by nearly 11 million workers. it's staggering. the president's economic plan, the bailouts, more big government stuff. failed. but don't worry. john mccain thinks the president is getting the message. >> i think it's clear that the president is really to a more sen trift position which i think makes it easier for to

their promise, put the cuts into the budget and let obama veto it and shut the government down, if that is the case, or let democrats in the senate block it and, again, shut the government down and that will be on them, not on the republicans. >> jamie: that is interesting. is there a risk/reward analysis here? what do the house republicans have to lose by sticking to the pledge and seeing what democrats do in the senate? >> i think that you are exactly right, that that is absolutely the best possible scenario, because the worst thing that can happen is that democrats block it. and republicans can always go into the next election, saying we kept our promise and we were the adults, we made these proposed cuts, obviously, we don't control the sentence and don't control the white house and therefore we couldn't, you know, didn't succeed, democrats blocked it, but, if that this is case, then you -- you know, every election is pin the tail on the donkey and you pin the tail on the donkey and make sure you win the argument and blame it on the democrats. and, they -- that way they hav
